Nudity Laws and Red Rock Beach

Laws regarding nudity at the naturist beach vary by location and fines are stiff in some places. Take a look at the Marin County nudity laws. I have made every effort to provide accurate information, but the responsibility for knowing the current law at Red Rock Beach is yours.

Nude or naturist beach neophytes, please be respectful of others and read the Nude Beach and Topless Beach Etiquette guidelines before you go to a nude beach.
